A short question:

Assume my repository is at: /usr/local/cvs/my_app. What would then be the statement to do a remote login (pserver is working)?

"cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvs/my_app login" yields:

Logging in to :pserver:address@hidden:2401/usr/local/cvs/my_app
CVS password:
/usr/local/cvs/my_app: no such repository

I've never used pserver, so I may be totally off base here. Clearly the login is working, or it wouldn't tell you that there's no such repository. However, the directory name my_app leads me to believe that your -d option is specifying your project directory (ie, a top-level directory) in the repository, not the repository root. Remember that the repository is the directory where the CVSROOT sub-directory is; you may have multiple top-level directories (ie, projects) in a single repository.

So, I'd try this:

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvs login
